Yuna and Tidus "cosplayed to death??"

Is it just me or is Yuna being OVER-Cosplayed?....
Every time I go to a cosplay site it's almost always got a Yuna piccy on it. I mean the dress is nice and all but I think there are too many!! Same with Tidus in a way....Not as many as there are Yunas, but don't you think that they are becoming cosplayed to death? @_@
Am I the only girl here that HASNT cosplayed as Yuna? XD
And why dose everyone want to make it? I played only bits of the game so.... I might not understand... -_-
Someone said that Rinoa was cosplayed to death but you see very few of those now-a-days.

I think it's a very pretty dress, and I even like her new outfit too. I personally haven't cosplayed Yuna, but I don't think there's anything wrong with cosplaying a popular outfit. I think it really is gorgeous, and flattering to a lot of different body types. Plus, it looks comfy!

I'll second what KuroBara said. I enjoy seeing all the different versions and variations people come up with for their own interpretations of a popular costume.

I think any female FF costume, 7-10, can be considered overcosplayed. ^_^;; except maybe Freya...

I'm actually almost done with an entirely blue version of Yuna. I wanted to cosplay her, because I love the character and the costume, but ... I wanted it in blue. XD;;; if it turns out ok (which I think it's going to) I'm going to make an all brack an red one. >D and Michi said she'd be my other-colored Tidus waaiiiiiii *^^* I might wear it to US-JE, but... I'm not sure. either way, I'll post pictures when it's done.

oh, here's a little dolly of my blue Yuna I made when I got bored.. .>.>

I think it's okay for people to cosplay what they want, and if they want to make a Yuna, more power to them! I'm sure there's lots of ways to make it original and different from all the rest. It's like variations on a theme, kinda!

But as far as I go... no thanks. I don't really like the character to begin with, but I try not to cosplay characters that you know you'll see like.. 59 of, at a con. I try to go for the more non-cosplayed characters, which almost always turn out to be my favorites anyways, because they're so.. unpopular? LOL.. you know what I mean. (Maybe?)

I think all the Yunas, Tidus', etc. from a con should get together with all of their kind and take a big All Yuna pic.. XD That would be cool!!

I thought that Tidus was overplayed and not Yuna. But then again, I don't go to that many cons. ^^

I also agree, I also don't plan on doing her as well! *thinks Yuna is annoying, don't kill me!*

A lot of FF characters are over cosplayed, but it's always nice seeing them so I don't mind much. The next two I plan on doing has hardly EVER been done, in fact, one of them hasn't been done yet either *grins*

-Also thinks Yuna is VERY annoying.-

I don't mind most ff cosplayers even if the costumes are usually WAY overdone,but I find that out of a group of ten Yunas.. about 3 are done with effort,The rest just looked thrown together ..pictures only including them cause shes popular.
Well done Yunas are beautiful,the crappy ones are just annoying.

And Tidus,I dont see nearly as many of him.. but its basically the same thing.
I have seen many an amazing brotherhood thoug,thee weapons always seem to be done well..

I'll admit that there are lots of people who cosplay as Tidus and Yuna, but I don't mind it at all.

If you want to cosplay as a certain character, do so, by all means, whether or not the character has never been cosplayed before or has been cosplayed a million times.

That feeling you get when you're in a costume you love is one of the very premises of cosplay. However, another premise of cosplaying is creativity. If I see someone dressed as a character that's never been done before, or is done very well, I'll be very impressed.

and plus, its fun to take photos with other yunas^_^ but anyways thts my opinion^_^

Yups yups ^^
I really don't mind seeing 34520432 different Yunas/Tidus at a con, or as a matter of fact, ANY other overcosplayed characters! It's interesting to see so many different interpretations of their costumes ^^
I'm actually making a Yuna costume too

Tidus and Yuna are trendy costumes, in time, they're be less and less. Overall, are there really too many? I don't really think there are many people actually doing those costume. and those numbers are overshadowed by the kenshin cosplayers. So it shouldn't matter how many there are, its not like each one is the same costume. I've even done tidus, its actually one of my more fun costumes to be in. and isn't that the point...fun.

I myself have been seeing quite a few Lulu's, and Faye Valentines.

But, I'm not complaining. Like others have said, I also like seeing how each cosplayer goes about making the costume.

They make Lulu's dress look so easy to make.

-_-
